Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The cumulative number of newly active lesions on standardized brain MRI scans after 24 weeks of treatment (Week 28). [ Time Frame: Cumulative number of newly active lesions from baseline to Week 28. ]
    The following lesions are considered newly active: new gadolinium enhancement on T1-weighted images; new lesions on T2-weighted images, but non-enhancing on T1-weighted images; new enlargement on T2-weighted images, but non-enhancing on T1-weighted images.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Occurrence of any treatment emergent adverse event. [ Time Frame: During up to 24 weeks of treatment. ]
